This Terminal Control Panel Reminds You to Take a Break If You Get Lost Deep in the Command Line

If you use the terminal a lot for programming, you know that deep within these blinking commands it is easy to get lost. Tiny-Care-Terminal is a little dashboard that reminds you to stop and take care of yourself from time to time.

After installing it, you will get a dashboard that displays your git commits for the last week, weather, and you will see an unobtrusive little message from a brooding parrot nudging you to relieve some stress. This advice is never hard, it’s usually just a fancy reminder to check your posture, rest your eyes, or stretch for a second. The dashboard displays these tweet reminders from tinycarebot , selfcare_bot, and magicalrealismbot , although you can change them to whatever accounts you want. If you spend a lot of the day in the terminal, this will be a nice little display worth seeing and might even help you take better care of yourself.
